I went a bit book crazy on our trip to NYC. Here is what I bought...I am enjoying the Patti Smith book--she is a really good writer. The Japanese books are from Kinokuniya Bookstore in their new digs near Bryant Park and the NYPL. The design book is from the Cooper-Hewitt.
When I was looking for information on where to buy this book I stumbled across Kat Coyle's blog who bought the same book and has made a scarf from it. It is truly gorgeous so I hope that I can make one as nice!
